We had a beautiful Christmas even without the snow!
We had a wonderful feast on Christmas Day at my sister Diane's house. I made eggplant parmesan, sausage bread, stromboli and cocktail gingerbread men cookies that everyone enjoyed. I was in Wegmans and spotted the chocolate liqueur bottles wrapped in foil. In the bakery department they had the gingerbread men so all I had to do was attach the chocolate liqueur bottles with Royal icing. Fun idea from Sprinkle Bakes and La Table de Nana. We (over)ate, played games, and enjoyed our family time. I gave my guys flannel shirts as you can see in the photo above.
On December 26th, Joe and I drove to New York City to spend time with his family. We shopped and enjoyed the Rockefeller tree and breathtaking window displays like only NYC does. The weather was perfect, although not very Christmas-y…it was in the 60’s!
If you are like me and don't want to toss the photo cards you received during the holiday season, you can gather them up and punch holes in the corner of each card. Choose one card to make a cover and write the year. I used a non-photo card for the cover. Tie together with a ribbon, and you have a booklet of photo cards. A great idea from Pandora's Box.
Onward to the New Year! Wishing you all PEACE and all the best for the coming year. I'm loving 2016 since I never thought I'd see 16 again. LOL
